Pungent choice of word

“The more Qassam fire intensifies, and the rockets reach a longer range, they [the Palestinians] will bring upon themselves a bigger holocaust because we will use all our might to defend ourselves.”

Then again, there could be a mistranslation issue.

Agreed. It's a shocking choice of word especially for a politician.

A massive faceplam.

Maybe he meant a 'holocaust' specifically for the militants. A kind of surgical holocaust. Yes, that must be it.

OK, I'll take the bait and be entirely tasteless, tacky and incorrect ... there aren't enough Palestinians for anything resembling a holocaust.

That said, what a dumb-arsed thing for him to say.
